Maths

To start your maths learning each day, try one of the 'Fluent in Five' pages. These will help you practise your mental and written calculation skills. On Friday (or at another time during the week, if you'd prefer), do the short arithmetic test that I have posted to practise these skills further!
Then, access the presentation slides or video which explain the learning we would be doing in class. Once you have spent some time on the learning, move to the PDFs where you can choose your level of challenge. The answers are on the final pages for you to see how you are getting on when you have completed the tasks

Monday:

Recall 2, 3, 4, 5, 8 and10 times tables, and use a range of strategies to make links between times tables.

 

This week, we are going to be working on our times tables, on making links between them and on how having strong times table knowledge can help us with division.

 

Today, work through the lesson presentation. The multiplication grid is below for you see how many times table answers you can fill in after watching the presentation. Then, work through today's lesson task. It's a bit like 99Club but you can use your multiplication grid to help you!

 

Try at least to complete the first four columns of the lesson questions using the multiplication grid. Most of you should be able to complete the first five columns; use a multiplication grid to check your answers and circle any that are wrong. Then, hide the multiplication grid and try those again before trying next 2 columns!

 

For those who are confident with their times tables, the challenge is to start at the third column and complete the next five columns; use a multiplication grid to check your answers and circle any that are wrong. Hide the multiplication grid and try those again! Try the challenge at the bottom of the sheet too!

Tuesday:

Division using facts and remainders Day 1

 

Watch Ms Brown's video. Then, work through as many of the sets of questions as you can on the sheet called: Dividing by 5, 3 and 4: remainders 

If you need extra support, you can use real objects (such as pencils) so that you can group them like the counters in Ms Brown's video.

The most challenging questions are Set 5... see if you can answer those! If you would like an extra challenge, complete the challenge at the bottom of the task sheet.

Wednesday:

Division using facts and remainders Day 2

 

Today's learning builds on our work yesterday. You might want to re-watch the video from yesterday to remind yourself. Then work through today's presentation. Don't forget that today's task is on the same document as yesterday's!

 

If you're finding division tricky, work on Dividing by 2, 3, 4, 5, and 10: remainders Sheet 1.

If you're feeling pretty confident, work on Dividing by 2, 3, 4, 5, and 10: remainders Sheet 2, Section A and then try B.

 

For a challenge, there are problem-solving and reasoning questions at the end of lesson presentation!

Thursday:

Multiplication and Division Word Problems

 

Watch Ms Brown's video and then choose your task from Multiplication and Division Problems Sheet 1 or Sheet 2. Sheet 2 is more challenging.

If you would like an extra challenge, there are problem-solving and reasoning questions below!

Friday:

Today we will work on mental and written maths.  Complete the short arithmetic test that I have posted to practise your skills! Remember to use a written method if you need to. Mark your answers when you have finished to see how you did.

 

Also, choose your 99Club level and see if you can complete it in the given time. You can find the different 99Club levels, and the answers, under 'Maths Extras'. Remember to mark your work... if you didn't get an answer correct this week, practise over the course of next week and see if you can improve your score next Friday. Once you have completed a level with all the correct answers in the given time 3 times, move onto the next level!
